Description:

The citron, like the lemon and lime, is native to NE India, where it was used from early times as a perfume and in medicine. The fruit seems always to have had a curious connection with religion and magic, and a high reputation as medicine, being regarded as an antidote to almost any poison and indeed almost a panacea. A mutation that occurred sometimes after the citron reached China in the fourth century gives the Buddha’s Hand its characteristic lobes that resemble the human hand. The uniquely shaped fruit is famous for its fragrance in both China and Japan and is also valued as an ornamental, ever-bearing tree. Citrons are now used almost exclusively for the manufacture of candied peel the Buddha’s hand variety is candied in China.
